The present volume is focused on the interactions and syncretistic tensions between religion and philosophy in Late Antiquity. The contributors examine issues of personal religious attitudes, initiation to the mysteries, Orphism, theurgy, magic, the Neoplatonist philosopher's quest for intimacy or union with the divine, magic and Christianity, and oracles, dream-visions and divination.
